Interview with Dermot Earley

(Oldest Posts First)

Hey folks,

A few of you on here had mentioned you enjoyed some of the previous podcasts, so just sharing the latest one here with Kildare legend Dermot Earley. It is a new series I started up this year that has wracked up 42,000 or so plays from across 80 countries.

As well as recounting some good and bad times in his Kildare jersey, Dermot Earley was also open and honest about being diagnosed with testicular cancer in his early twenties, what it was like to grow up in the army, serve in unstable countries like Bosnia and Lebanon and the impact of the untimely passing of his father, Dermot Snr, seven years ago. He also retold the story of a time when he was invited to Manchester United and ended up in the physio room beside Diego Forlan and Carlos Queiroz.

Dermot is the current CEO of the Gaelic Players Association and spoke about why he is so passionate about bettering the lives of the inter-county player on and off the field.
